The Banner Bag is an incredible project created by Gyda Sigurdardottir and Michele Santoro that turns old banner materials into handy tote bags. Both Gyda and Michele have been living in Ningbo, China for almost a year, and have just launched funding on June 4th to raise $8,000 for their project.

The idea for The Banner Bag project came after realizing too many companies in China discard their banners directly after their advertising campaigns finish. Sometimes these materials are re-used for other purposes, but more often than not, these banners create immense amounts of pollution. These tote bags are durable, easily folded and are perfect for going to class or grocery shopping. The Banner Bag is a unique project that tries to protect the planet while providing an attractive bag with creative designs. Stats for Reusable Green Totes Trending: Older & Warm
